ROLL OF HONOUR

 
TO REBUILD CAMBODIA FREE FROM LANDMINE CONTAMINATION

VISION 2019

Tony "Bomber" Bower-Miles was a young engineer in the Australian Army when he first went to Vietnam in the late 1960's. Land mines, in particular US made M16 anti-personnel mines, were one of the major threats faced by our troops, and much of Bomber's work involved cleaning up their aftermath along with other explosive ordnance devices (EOD's) positioned by the enemy and used to great effect against Australian troops.

 In 2001, Bomber returned to South East Asia, putting his minefield breaching and clearance skills to work in the task of locating and destroying some of the 4 to 6 million land mines that still contaminate Cambodia. On a shoestring budget, Bomber established the Vietnam Veterans' Mine Clearing Team. In early 2008 the Vietnam Veterans Mine Clearing Team - Cambodia Inc was registered as an incorporated entity in Queensland. (IA:36313) and registered with the Australian Government Business Register (ABN. 22 868 580 912). It is also a registered Charity in Queensland.

These days, Bomber, Mac McGregor and Gerry Lyall physically and financially supports the Cambodian Self Help Demining operation, a Non Government Organisation (CSHD NGO) and were directly involved with the CSHD's accreditation and certification as a demining organisation with the Cambodian authorities and continues to support them with the donations of concerned Australians. By the end of 2013, we have cleared over 1.9 million square metres of contaminated land.  Land that was previously killing people is now being put to productive agricultural use and in turn making Cambodia a much safer place for their children.

Each of the mine detectors purchased by us from Minelab Australia for the de-mining operation in Cambodia has a plaque attached in honour of one of the Engineers killed during the war in Vietnam.
